cake pops or cake balls in SF
I admit to being intrigued by the cake pops phenomenon. Where do I find them in SF?
Cake pops are smooshed-up crumbled cake bits and frosting, optionally dipped in chocolate or something else and served on a stick. (Without the stick, they're called "cake balls.") I imagine people have strong reactions to cake pops or the idea of them (brilliant! repulsive! etc.), and there's already a thread about how people feel about cake pops here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/781124 . Now, I'm asking where to find them in SF. Thanks.
They're okay. Starbucks now displays calories, so they're not a huge investment. But I'd rather have Rice Krispies treats (same calories according to Starbucks).
We had red velvet cake pops at a play at the Lorraine Hansbury Theater recently, catered at Fort Mason.
Presumably frozen first. Not as good as cupcakes.
I tried one from Starbucks and didn't like it. I first tried a few at the Underground Market by these two guys that started a cake pop business. My favorites were peach, strawberry, and one in the shape of an ice cream cone. Their flavors were subtle and really good. jwcakepops.com

There's a vendor at the Glen Park Farmer's Market (Sundays) that sells them. I think they also have pie pops.
